    Jamie Nails Is A Man On A Mission...

    As TE ALONZO MAYES walks into WENDYS and asks the cashier to "SUPERSIZE" his order of burgers and fries....you can hardly believe then....that a man the size of G JAMIE NAILS can go into SUBWAY....and order just a TUNA SUB on whole wheat please? And a Diet COKE?

    Well....thats the way it really appears. I am impressed with the way that NAILS has approached this off-season. This guy was aorund the 400 pound mark last camp....and just did not have the conditioning in this hot, sunny camp weather...to make it through without a struggle. Now....only 1 year later....NAILS is "down" to around the 340 pound mark.,..and he really is starting to make his mark for a roster spot.

    I think everyone has heard WANNY rave about NAILS....and his work ethic this off-season. From the day that he signed on....he has been in that weight room. He also signed up...one of those dietician specialists...who apparently is worth every cent that NAILS is paying him or her. Lots of folks have noticed his new lean and mean look....and that is what you would call "Motivation".

    Thus far....I feel that NAILS has really impressed the coaches on the field.....as he is pretty hard to push back.....the only thing JAMIE has to NAIL down better.....is his pass-blocking ability....which he is working on. But clearly....the guy is motivated...and I really believe that he will make the final roster this season. Along with SETH MCKINNEY.....he will provide the line...some much better depth at the Guard position.

    ALONZO MAYES should have taken a "bite" out of NAILS work-ethic this off-season.....if not....at least hired that dietician.

    Two players.....going in opposite directions....and to different restaurants.....MAYES and NAILS... DCH

    Very well put DCH! I for one have taken notice to Nails, and at 340 playing guard, man the sky is the limit if he can improve his pass protection!

    This O-line is either going to be damn good or a damn shame.....time will tell us soon enough.

    The NAIL in MAYES happy meal was the Fins drafting McMichael (not that he's a gem) I would love for us to have Searcy at 320 and Nails at 340 as our starting G to provide RW with that push, but not if that leaves the passing game and Jay competely vulnerable

    Nails has been my personal "sleeper" for a month or two now. He will make the team as the 2nd string RG.

    In Buffalo, his mission was to hit every Dunkin Donut's in Erie County in a single night. Evidently he succeeded many, many times.

    Yup he did and that's why he was cut pretty quick when he showed up at 400lbs. We are just figuring any guy who can lose 60lbs in a year is a guy who realizes he's on his last rope and is hanging on by his fingernails. If he makes it on the roster he would have to be pretty impressive with the stigma he has on him from the weight he showed up at last year.
